At first I was wondering what the big fuss was about with Canon and why they have about 70% market share and why Nikon was so far behind. After going through numerous forums and websites I have come to a few conclusions about both companies. It seems as though Canon has faster AF and FPS for relatively the same price (d80 vs 30d). The IQ at high ISO is better. The lense selection is wider for Canon (plus cheaper for an equivalent Nikon). The only downfall I see is the lack of CLS (easily resolved by buying the wireless adaptor) The only pluses I see for Nikon are the ergonomics (which doesn't translate to better IQ) and an all round lense (18-200vr) what do you guys think? I know the Canon vs Nikon debate has been going on forever but there is always a best and better. As far as I can tell, the Canon system is currently the best. BTW I just purchased a d80 to try out and I am not too impressed. The ergonomics of this thing is Awesome though.
